The 18th official release in Smoke Inn’s long-running Microblend series is coming, with the Florida-based retailer partnering with Espinosa Premium Cigars for the Cage the DAWG release.

Playing on Espinosa’s Alpha Dawg cigar (a crowd-sourced blend first launched in 2016), the Cage the DAWG cigar arrives with the tagline, “What happens when you Cage the DAWG? Eventually, the Alpha DAWG gets unleashed!”

The cigar is rolled in a singular 6″ x 52 toro format out of Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, making use of an Ecuadorian Habano rosado wrapper and all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers from Nicaragua’s Jalapa and Condega regions. This blend is described as offering a unique, two-way experience, whereby the wrapper takes center stage through the retrohale, and the filler is more noticeable upfront and across the palate.

According to Erik Espinosa, owner of Espinosa Premium Cigars, “It’s almost like two distinct smoking experiences: first the sweetness of filler, followed by the woody and peppery taste of the Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Two unmistakable, delicious flavors in one cigar.”

Espinosa Cage the DAWG is packaged in 10-count paper bundles, and are limited to 300. Priced at $9.50 MSRP, the cigars will debut on on on Wednesday, Oct. 5th at 12pm Eastern.
